From its foundation in 1970, the University of Gdańsk has shaped its own distinctive structures and systems of academic work, thereby integrating the humanities, social studies, biological sciences, and exact sciences in the Pomeranian region.
The University’s existing system of instruction will be developed in accordance with world-wide trends, such as: the timely exploitation within education of the results of the most recent scientific and scholarly research; the continual adaptation of the range of courses of study and specializations to the interests of those studying and to the expectations of the economy and society (the needs of the employment market); the creation of elastic teaching programs; the creation of interdisciplinary studies; the introduction of up-to-date educational technology; the development of new forms of education – e-Learning, Lifelong Learning, Individual Studies, an open university, transferable courses of study.
